Rey Campero Wild Mexicano Mezcal

Item # 34455 750mL

Mexicano, a precious and increasingly rare species of agave grows primarily in the wild and produces some of the most subtly distinctive mezcal on the planet. When grown wild the plants typically take over a decade to mature and the profile skews towards the earthy and savory. Notes here include sea salt, mixed peppers, fresh pickle, mesquite, bee pollen, dried pineapple, wet clay, sweet limes and a hint of ginger. This is serious, commanding mezcal on a mission. Well worth the price of entry.

Staff Pick Notes

Newly imported into the US Mezcal, Rey Campero is all about tradition. Produced at a single palenque in Candelaria Yegole, Oaxaca, Rey Campero is more than a business, it’s about family. Easily one of the finest expressions of “Mexicano” I have had. Benefiting from deeper tail cuts, there is a fresh, herbal, briny component to this mezcal. I fell in love with its delicateness and transparency which allows it to express something beyond the cliche of “smoke”. It is not a tale of force, it is rather all about finesse and complexity. It was extremely difficult to put this one down.
